[#013] Creating Spaciousness: Using Volume
Season 01 | Episode 08
This season has been all about what matters most in designing your new home or renovation.
Many homeowners dream of a home that feels spacious. And they fall into the trap of believing that this means their home has to be bigger.
And it’s understandable. Especially when we’re renovating or building family homes. Often the need to renovate or build will be brought about because we feel we need more space. This might be because of the addition of new family members. Or it will be because our existing family members are growing and becoming more active.
[#014] Creating Spaciousness: Using Light
Season 01 | Episode 09
In this episode, I’ll share how light can be used to create a spacious home. Light is the second tool we have in our toolkit to create spaciousness in our homes.
When talking about light, we need to think about both natural and electric night. After all, you want your home to feel spacious during the day, and after dark, don’t you!
Many homeowners, when describing how they want their homes to be, use the words ‘airy’ and ‘light’ or ‘light-filled’.

In this episode, I share how great storage create spaciousness. This is the third tool we have in our toolkit to create spaciousness in our homes.
Storage can be fundamental in creating a physical sense of spaciousness. However, it is also key in creating mental spaciousness. That sense of calm that comes from feeling organised because there’s a place for everything, and everything is in its place.
The aim is to design our homes to support us, and our lifestyles, all the time. Especially at those hectic moments of the day that test the calm in any family home.
